Angelina Jolie slammed for young Zahara's hair extensions

December 23, 2011 - Washington

Experts have criticized Angelina Jolie for taking her 6-year-old daughter Zahara for hair extensions.

A leading hairstylist has claimed that Zahara is far too young to be wearing braided hair extensions.

Celebrity groomer DaRico Jackson said that the 'Salt' star's little girl should not be putting such a strain on her tender locks.

"If Angelina wants Zahara to be in touch with her roots and have her hair braided then she can do that with the child's own hair and she doesn't need to add extensions," Radar Online quoted Jackson as saying.

"She is far too young for that and Angelina is creating insecurity in the little girl that what she has is not good enough.

"Growing up with siblings who have long flowing hair, Zahara may grow to feel that her own natural hair is not pretty enough, and that without the fake hair she is not beautiful. She should be made to embrace who she is," he added.

Jackson said that in his opinion Jolie would be better off having Zahara's natural hair plaited which can still give her some respite from daily combing and brushing.

"There are many cute styles that Zahara can have without adding fake hair at such a tender age," he added.
